Approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in August, the DiabetesManager System supports medication adherence and provides for the capture, storage, and real-time transmission of blood glucose data and other diabetes self-management information by utilizing mobile phones and the Internet. The medical data generated is analyzed by WellDoc's proprietary automated analytics system, which identifies trends and delivers relevant educational and behavioral patient coaching and provider decision support.

With the integration of Allscripts EHR, physicians will have access to real-time patient self-care data, including: blood glucose data, medication use, lifestyle information, and other diabetes related information, which when used in conjunction with traditional EHR data (e.g., labs, exams, screenings, etc.) will offer a more complete picture of the patient's health. In addition, the integration of EHR data will allow the DiabetesManager algorithms to be modified to suit the patient's treatment regimen, making the system smarter and better able to deliver personalized behavioral coaching, WellDoc executives said.

"Historically, caring for people with diabetes required that healthcare providers manage a plethora of complex clinical information," Suzanne Sysko Clough, founder and chief medical officer of WellDoc, said in a statement. "EHRs moved us from an era of static data to accessible real-time data in the physician's hand, and now with this first integration of a mHealth solution into an EHR, we have moved into the highest value era of applying intelligent analytics to the real-time data, thus enabling providers to optimize patient care, all within their current workflow."
